Our 3rd Annual Marine Buddy Challenge will be held on March 13th, 2010 at Colonel Francis Beatty Park in Matthews, NC.
What is a Marine buddy challenge? It's a modified verision of the Marine Corps Combat Physical Fitness Test.
So what's that mean... well, you and one partner will be running, low crawling, a couple of buddy carries, maybe some duck walking, push-ups, yelling, running some more, getting yelled at - we mean "motivated" by Marines, running some more, throwing a simulated hand grenade, casualty drag running, yelling, carrying an ammo can full of heavy things, running through several slalom courses and yelling and for the duration of the event, both you and your teammate will be wearing your own backpack that is required to weigh 10% of your own bodyweight.
Rain or shine we'll be there to help you enjoy yourself at our event. So register now! Our registration site is: http://marinebuddychallenge.eventbrite.com/
Team categories (top 3 fastest teams in each category will receive awards):
Each team is required to dressed uniformly (that means your running outfit should look like your teammates). We will be recognizing the best/most creative outfits.
